I was leaving a meeting and chatting with my coworker and think I saw a former client from my old job years and years ago. We both made eye contact, but I didn't acknowledge her. She might have recognized me since I managed the program she was in. I feel really bad now.

Pet peeve - people who need to talk to me RIGHT AWAY, so they IM, text, email, and call (yes, all 4) over and over, as fast as possible. I get back to my desk after an hour long meeting and have 20 voicemails (and IMs, and texts, and emails)! Do people not understand what leaving a message is - that I will get back to you AS SOON AS I AM AVAILABLE! JFC, I am just a data person - I'm not saving lives, or catching bad guys, or anything. I run data, and people use it for analysis. Waiting a few hours makes no difference at all.

It's a little rainy out and Elderly CW put on her little plastic rain bonnet to go after the mail. Good times.

I just got a phone call from a client .. a government entity.... and my fucking jaw is on the floor. The way they do things is so ass-backwards and fucked up it's just unbelievable. Newly appointed official is going to fire the deputy because she didn't think he should have the job, and said so publicly. The problem is- she is the ONLY person in that office that knows ANYTHING about ANYTHING that they do there. Seriously, that's why he was calling- to see if anyone in MY office knew how to run THEIRS. Because he has no fucking clue. Oh, and he requested full confidentiality so that he can blindside her when he shit-cans her. Just sickening. I am sickened.

So I prepared a Lease Contract a couple weeks ago. Mom tenant asks me to write something about the children as occupants so she can register them in school. This requires me to prepare an Addendum, which becomes part of the contract. So I set it up for electronic signature for her and her DH and send it. He signs, but two weeks later and multiple re-sending and reminding, and she still hasn't signed. Saturday she emails me saying it "isn't necessary to sign" because it was just for the school and they accepted it as is. I reply that since it is a part of the contract, it's a legal document that must be signed or we will be non-compliant (ie, get in trouble). STILL hasn't signed, which literally takes two minutes!!! Tomorrow I will let her know that not signing makes her in breach of contract, which comes with legal ramifications. JFC, the entitlement. This is a legal document, not a favor we did for you!

Need advice!! What do you girls/guys do about the bully at work? Management doesn't do jack shit about her and I try my best to stay out of her way so that I don't ruffle her feathers. Others who have come before me have tried to get her in trouble for her evil ways, but she threatens to sue, so the higher ups brush everything under the rug. Everyone whose filed a complaint never follows through. She been there forever, and I'll end up retiring before her, so I have to suck it up and deal with it. But I have so much anger and hatred for her that I feel like it's destroying me. I often dwell on things she's done or says and it plays over and over in my head. She has the immaturity of a 12 year old, but she's truly evil. Has anyone had to deal with this before? How do you handle it? Please help!

A lot of blue collar workers think white collar workers don't work as hard for their paychecks. It's just the way of the world.

I found out that my coworker and I (who are higher-ups at the company we work for) are disliked a bit by the manufacturing crew because they don't think we work that hard for our paychecks. Um, I would beg to differ with them. We often come in and stay late and we analyze formulas for the vitamins to make them easier for those guys to make. We have to go to meetings and conferences to get better at what we do. We "get" to design Excel spreadsheets for quantities and cost analyses. I sometimes wish my job was nice and mindless where all I had to do was put powders on a scale all day. I guess no ones really ever satisfied.

Yesterday at work I was so stressed out and anxious again, as usual. I was using a box cutter and a pair of scissors for the project I was working on. For one split second I thought about thrusting the scissors into my chest to pierce my heart. Then I saw the open box cutter and began fantasizing about slitting my wrists right before thrusting the scissors. Fuck, how am I ever going to make it 5 more years until retirement?
